Report: HBO picks four college programs for Hard Knocks show
quote:

A documentary series modeled after HBO's popular 'Hard Knocks' program is coming to college football.

According to various reports, Arizona State, Alabama, Washington State and Penn State have entered discussions to allow cameras and filmmakers on campus this season to shoot footage for an upcoming yet-to-be-revealed production on the popular cable channel.

Leach would be entertaining at Wash St.

He allowed ESPN all access for a show about training camp last season. All about recruiting.

Saban allowing this is mind blowing.

I would bet it's going to get very curated

I mean, how else can we make money off of student-athletes without letting them see a dime from their own likeness?

That's good to hear. Alabama needs some help recruiting. I was getting worried about them.

Not sure Alabama/Saban needed any more exposure. Frankly that sounds kinda boring.

Leach, Franklin and Herm will be interesting to watch though.

It can't be much different than SEC's All Access coverage that they do for every school every year.

Yea, we've done a lot of these before - either the week of a game or in fall camp. We had a long series a few years ago, may have even been all the way back in 2010.

It's when Ezell gave us this classic.

Ezell imitates Nick Saban : "The air ain't got calories guys"

Now he's on staff as an offensive analyst.

Don’t think HBO can really show what goes on behind the scenes there.

ESPN runs 100 behind the scenes fluff pieces on Bama every year, seems like including them is overkill

Training Days Rolling with the Tide

ESPN had a four part series that aired on ESPN2 last year.

They'll be waiting on Saban's retirement like the rest of us. No way in hell this happens.

Herm has done it before with the Chiefs.

It is really well done. A&M has one as well, I think, and it is also good.

Saying things that are contradicted by years of actual events/results/facts is one of my favorite parts of the rant.
